Pros:
Cons:

Sloop. "Cab"-in forward design; Almost all cockpit with companionway in front of mast. Has an outline that is reminiscent of the C-22, but scaled back. Below, there is a Vee berth and quarter berths. Inboard rudder, shallow keel with centerboard. Heavily built. Water drains out of cockpit through center of cockpit. Rudder's weak design contrasts with the rest of the boat - large aluminum plates that rotate when rudder is in down position bear a lot of pressure and crack.

I'm trying to learn more about her designer, history, and intended characteristics. I use her as an inland pond day sailor, but she seems solid enough to take for a single-handed Great Lakes journey.

Pros:
Cons:

Very large for a daysailor with a huge cockpit, great for having boat parties or bringing the whole family along for a sail. cuddy cabin sleeps 4 for a weekend trip, and there are many little cubbies and nooks for storage.
Self-bailing cockpit, swing-keel and rudder, large jib and smaller main. Very stable -- PO was caught in 40kt winds, the boat just heeled until the wind spilled from the sails, then righted again. Trailerable, _can_ be set up by one person, since mast foot has a hook to hold it in place while pulling the mast up.
Some have portholes in the cabin, but mine doesn't.
I have the original owner's manual, so e-mail me if you'd like a copy or any info it has.

Pros: Comfortable,stable,easy to handle,great for solo or up to seven adults. 20' of cockpit seatin!
Cons: Rudder is a week point, but mine's been fine for 35 years. Toe rails hold water. It weighs a ton!

All I can say is I love this boat. I purchased an Oday Daysailer thinking it would be easier to haul,set up,ect. It is, but not nearly a nice to sail in. This boat sails wonderfully in light or stiff breezes. I use a 150 genoa and it moves this boat in very light wind. It's a pocket cruiser with the cockpit space of a forty footer.
The mast in the doorway is not an issue in my eyes. The extra wide hatch allows for easy entry and the mast acts as a hand rail. I'm 250Lbs and haven't had an issue with it at all.
